According To Who - Poem by Ragy Sandid

According to who
One’s better off in bed
Better off where they tread
Better off here instead
Better off with some books read

According to who
One’s better off on their feet
To prepare faces to meet
And prepare words to greet
The signs on the street
Of taking a stand or sitting on a seat

According to who
One’s sinew’s better than one’s bone
One’s company than one’s lone
One’s glass is better than one’s stone
One small outlook is better than one full grown

According to who
What’s right is wrong is right
According to who
Sight is blind to sight
According to who
Is the standard of delight?
According to a peeling plight?
Or according to meek might
Do we sit out or join the fight?
According to who
Do we break bleak to bright?
